“I can’t tell you how excited I am to find you and finally make a decision to paint again. I have been in my oil paint four days in a row.  Saturday was so fun. I loved painting with a limited palette. That was an eye opener. […]  I do believe with some guidance I can achieve what my mind envisions. Sincerely,  Anne Marie”

“I really love the classes. You’re a great teacher and you make it fun!” – Hattie

Color Mixing Primer

1-hour lesson
On-demand recording.
This lesson is free for Artists taking any Workshop.

The workshop is for anyone who asks “How do I mix that color?”

There is a presentation about important color-mixing concepts and terminology, as well as practical “how to mix” information. Color mixing is simplified down to its most basic and useful information.
